How do I make homemade citrus pectin?

12 years ago

Help Carol,

I saw in a thread somewhere you mentioned instructions for homemade citrus pectin but I've been searching and searching but haven't found it (even using google advance search of garden web, though I'm not very practiced at that.)

Anyway, I've got loads of citrus to work with this time of year and would love to learn how to make my own pectin. Please share those instructions again or post a link to it here.

I've found plenty of recipes for making apple pectin but apples are not abundant or cheap here since we don't get enough chilling hours for most varieties of them. I have been throwing lots of citrus stuff left from juicing into the compost and it seems I could get some extra value from it.

Does freezing affect pectin?
